Holiday Gift Wrapping Party
posted November 28, 2012 6:38 AM   RSS | iCal | +googleCal

Sat December 8 at 12:00 PM, Private Apartment
1 Columbus Cir, New York, NY, USA (Map & Directions)
Help wrap gifts from the Holiday Gift Drive!
I am hosting a gift wrapping party for the toys purchased from the gift drive. I'll provide food and drink!

I can only host up to 10 people (not including myself and TPS). Please MeMail me with your real name because I need to provide to my doorman. I'll MeMail people my address. I live near Columbus Circle and I am within walking distance from the 1 A B C D N Q R and F.

Children are welcome but remember that there will be lots of toys around and sometimes scissors on the ground that you have to watch out for.

PLEASE BRING: your own pair of scissors and a roll or two of wrapping paper

I look forward to seeing you!

Please let me know if you have any dietary restrictions.

I'm coming and I'm bringing my 4-month old! Which probably means I won't be much help with the wrapping, but I never really was; I'm a terrible gift wrapper.

This was pretty fun the last time so I would like to attend!

I've been toying with the idea of serving dim sum if this entices anyone.

Missed last year but enjoyed the year before. I'll be there, and I might even bring scissors.

Ack! I want to do this, but I am filming that day. I'm not sure of the times, but as soon as I know, I'll apply to be an alternate or whatever if I'm free.

Guys, this is a really fun and great thing to do, so if you see this and you can make it, sign up!

I will wrap the hell out of some gifts. I can also do curly ribbon.

I want to come hold a baby.

Wow, that sounded seriously creepy. What I mean is, I am making efforts to rearrange my schedule so I can help out, because I love helping out. The presence of a baby makes the whole thing 20% cooler.

It's not too late at all! Please come! I'd love to see you and your daughter again! She can keep my dog out of trouble.
